When I was writing my first eBook almost two years ago, I found that my list was so small I would not have enough prospects to sell my eBook to once it was finished. I decided to take some of the points I had made in my eBook and turn them into a 6 part e-course. I began to tell my list, my business contacts, other bloggers, and anyone else who would listen about my e-course. The result was that my list began to grow and grow as people shared it with others. Everyone wanted my e-course, even though it only consisted of 6 short emails that I loaded into an autoresponder series. I began to make money as people purchased the affiliate products I listed at the end of each part of the e-course.
I have given away several of my e-courses as examples of how you can build your list and make money this way. Writing even a short e-course will position you as an expert in your field, and teach others the information you want to share in smaller, consumable chunks. Yesterday I found an eBook that describes the process in more detail and much better than I could do myself, so I want to share that with you now. It is written by Jimmy D Brown, the well-known internet author, and is called How To Create An E-Course. Please read it, learn from it, and let me know what you think about it.
